    Is there a timeout for filling out forms?

    Asked by onedirect on June 13, 2016 at 08:25 AM



    is there a timeout on your forms please?


    for example if somebody takes a long time to fill out the form (more than an hour) does it timeout and lose all data?

    Forms do not timeout by default, so your users can take as long as they need to in order to fill out the form.

    However, if you want to limit the amount of time your users have to complete the form, you may want to use one of our countdown widgets:

    You can add widgets to your form by following this guide:
